One of the all-time great films about the process of making art
Quite frankly one of the best films I've ever seen about an artist and the process of creating art. I didn't grow up reading Tintin, but am mighty tempted to start now as an adult.
While the film succeeds at all levels in telling the story of Hergé's life, what really sets it apart is the filmmaker's masterful way of conveying the feeling of what it was like to be Hergé and what it means to live the greater part of one's life through the characters one has created. Time and time again, it was the emotion of the moment that got me, drawing me closer and closer to Hergé, and compelling me forward into the next scene and the next element of the artist's life, which cast yet another new light on who he was and what drove him.
This is an utterly timeless film about the joys and despair of being an artist. I can't recommend it highly enough.
